Marley Coffee, a sustainably grown, ethically farmed and artisan roasted gourmet coffee, today announced that it has partnered with Mother Parkers Tea and Coffee, as its exclusive food service distribution partner for all of Canada. This partnership opens up opportunities for Marley Coffee to be placed in Universities, hotels, cafes, restaurants and convenient stores across the country. The partnership will provide for a full service program, which includes Marley Coffee's line of sustainable coffees in all formats alongside Mother Parkers' equipment support program.

Mother Parkers is the largest roaster in Canada and the 4th largest roaster in North America. The company is Canada's largest provider of coffee and tea branded solution for the food service industry.

"Marley Coffee fits the growing demand for a premium, socially responsible coffee solution for the Canadian food service market for Mother Parkers," says Sean Bredt VP of Coffee and Allied Products at Mother Parkers. "Marley Coffee allows us to provide a full branded coffee solution with the unique cache that only the Marley brand can deliver. We expect that Marley Coffee will represent up to 5% of our Canadian food service sales. Mother Parkers is committed to delivering a better beverage experience. The addition of Marley Coffee to our portfolio will allow us to deliver a better organic and socially responsible branded coffee solution."

"We were very excited to partner with Mother Parkers on Real Cups, so this expanded business partnership makes a lot of sense to the direction of the vision of this company," said Rohan Marley, founder and chairman of Marley Coffee. "They are a 100 year old family owned business with core principles similar to that of my own family's."

"I've had a relationship with Mother Parkers for over 30 years and to partner up with Canada's leader in food service truly solidifies another business channel for us in Canada," said Brent Toevs, CEO of Marley Coffee.
